Writing about Skype is kinda pointless at the moment, because half of information is closed and other half is nonexistent.
We are doing a rewrite of codebase using Qt4.
So far we have some basic contact list stuff, with contact cards etc. And! You can switch your online status.
So it’s almost a full fledged client here, we’re about to ship it soon.
I cannot say I’m satisfied with Qt4 MV model. It puts a lot of barriers, but otoh we might be using it wrongly yet
On the other hand, I’m rather satisfied with sigc++ signals — it works pretty well, if only missing a few nice points present in sigslot, but I can live with that.
People in closed beta – stay tuned, we’re gonna show you something Real Soon Now(tm).
